What Can I Expect At My Studio Maternity Photoshoot in Great Falls VA?

A full length studio session lasts approximately 1 hr. This time includes approximately 40 minutes of photography, with a few minutes before, during, and after to change outfits or do minor hair and makeup touch-ups. During your photography, I’ll guide you through poses to get a variety of images.

What’s Included:

12 Fully Edited Studio Photos

Your session includes twelve fully edited plain-background studio photos. These images feature a dark taupe backdrop that can be slightly modified with gel lighting or post-editing.

What’s Included:

Time for 2-3 Outfits*

Depending on how many poses you’d like, the complexity of the wardrobe, and whether your spouse/partner/SO is joining us, we typically have time for 2-3 outfits, OR 1-2 outfits and outdoor time. Outdoor images are weather and natural lighting dependent.

* Session fee does not include actual wardrobe

What’s Included: Images with Spouse, Partner or Significant Other

Your spouse, partner, or significant other is welcome to join your session!

If your spouse/partner/SO is joining your session, I usually recommend 1-2 poses per outfit with them. If you’d like them in more images, just let me know!

Bonus: 4 Creative Edits

As a bonus, your session also includes four (4) creative images of your choice from your initial selection of 12 mages. These 4 images will be duplicates from their originals, with creative edits or background replacements applied.

Creative edits may include overlays like light leaks, bokeh, or soft rainbows, as well as background replacements. While I’m happy to take general guidelines for these images (color and/or theme), due to the nature of the editing process, these images are fully under my creative license and do not include client input or revisions.

If you’d like more control over these images, I’m happy to create a customized package that includes more input as well as revisions!

Optional Extras:

  • Heirloom quality luxe matte prints start at $15 — I am a strong believer in printing your photos so you’re able to see them on a regular basis! Your images will be edited using the color profile of my professional printing lab, and I strongly encourage ordering from me so that your images match the intended edit.
  • Gown and robe rental from my client closet – Varies, $25-$75 per item
  • Additional standard studio plain background images $35 each
  • Additional creative edit images $125 each
  • Additional half hour of studio photography time $250

If you want something more low key, an in-home full-length maternity photoshoot might be for you.

questions?

Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions.

How much is a maternity session?

Weekday full length maternity sessions are $695 for studio sessions and $750 for in-home sessions.

How do I book a maternity session?

To book a session, simply fill out the contact form at the bottom of this page. I’ll get back to you with a few date options, and then to secure your date and booking, you’ll need to sign a photography session agreement and pay the retainer which is equal to 50% of the session fee.

When should I book a maternity session?

I recommend having maternity sessions between 27-35 weeks of pregnancy, aiming for weeks 30-32 if possible. I also recommend booking as early as possible to get your preferred date and ensure sufficient time for planning your session.

How long is a full length maternity session?

Sessions are about 1 hr long, with about 40 minutes of photography. The remaining time may be used for outfit changes and/or hair and makeup touch-ups.

Do you offer gowns or a client closet?

I do rent gowns and dresses for sessions. I found in the past that many clients wanted to wear their own dresses. By offering dress rental as an optional add-on, I was able to lower session fees, and the rental fee covers the costs of steaming, cleaning, and transporting the dresses.
